About Us

At CONSIDER THE HOMELESS! – we have no agenda or affiliations other than to serve Berkeley’s homeless with dignity and respect.

We are a grassroots community based group of like-minded neighbors and friends who want to help those less fortunate than ourselves! Unlike most other services for the homeless we do not expect them to come to us. We deliver dinner and supplies to whomever needs them by driving slowly around downtown and calling out to those huddled in doorways, on sidewalks and in parks – “Sir/Ma’am, would you like some hot homemade soup?”

We never offer, nor give, cash or cigarettes – we offer a smile and a cup of hot nutritious soup, and thanks to Acme Bakery, some bread and we deliver directly to the homeless hand-to-hand. We even go up to those curled up for warmth in a sleeping bag or blankets. We tell them, “Stay here, we can bring it to you.” We also try to keep the car and trunk well stocked with basic supplies to offer our sisters and brothers on the streets, such as blankets, warm clothes, coats and jackets, boots/shoes, socks and clean underwear.
